Fred and me right before we took off down the river!
It’s a gator we saw on the river!
This is another gator. Actually I took a bunch of shots of gators but not all of them are that interesting so I just put the two best ones.
We ran the canoe onto the bank on purpose so we could have a picnic. This is me and my mommy relaxing.
Mom and Ivy picnic
This is what my mom described as the “big honkin’ tree” that we used as our landmark to find the picnic place. (It was pretty honkin’.)

We’re shoving off to paddle the rest of the trip; me and Mommy in the canoe.

There was some awesome scenery on the Hillsborough River! Lookit how the reflections are in the water.
A pretty bird in a picturesque scene!
WOW. Look at that reflection. It totally bowled me over, I’m glad the quality translated to digital format.
At the end of our trip, we spotted this WILD CHICKEN. Also known as gator food. Heh.

I met my friends at Beer Belly’s, where some came for the beer and some came for the karaoke. (Guess which reason was mine?) Here we have me, Phil, Steve, and Meghan.

Same people as above except now you can see Ammy. We’re trying to decide what to sing. (Steve is only concerned with getting shitfaced. Which he did well.)

Ammy, me, and Phil. Probably saying or doing something goofy.

For some reason this is what my mom did when her picture was taken at the karaoke place.

It was so special that I had to have two pictures. 🙂

Here’s me singing karaoke, from far away.

Meghan’s turn to sing! She is a doll.

Phil’s turn. My mom forbade him to sing the song “Chef’s Salty Chocolate Balls” this time, so he ended up singing Adam Sandler’s “Ode to My Car.” Just as raunchy. You can tell from his hand gesture.
